The team projects are designed to reflect the potential professional environment in which students in finance find themselves after graduation.
In order for the team to be productive, the objectives of the team and the responsibilities of each member must be clearly defined. For each project, the team is encouraged to break the project down into distinctive tasks (gather data, data entry, data verification, regression analysis, interpretation, word processing, etc), to assign clearly specified tasks to each member, and to meet on a regular basis to ensure that these tasks are completed. Each member should be able to understand the project as a whole and how each component of the project fits into that team effort. Each team member should be able to explain clearly and succinctly why and how each task was performed and to understand why and how tasks were performed by other members of the team.
Working as team is drawing on the strengths of each of its members, and each member learns from the others. Tom writing the introduction, Anne writing the company profile, Mary doing the data analysis, John writing the conclusion, and meeting to assemble the four different files an hour before deadline is NOT an example of working as a team. More than an assignment grade, a well written report can become a very valuable example of your capabilities to a recruiter in a job interview.
